Résumé
The Northern Great Plains is the largest producing region for pulse crops in the USA. Among US states, North Dakota currently ranks first for production of dry pea (45%), second for lentil production (36%), and fourth for production of chickpea (13%) (USDA-NASS, 2018). Combined production in eastern Montana and North Dakota accounts for 84, 87 and 58% of total US production of pea, lentil and chickpea, respectively (USDA-NASS, 2018). In 2018, the production area within North Dakota for pea and lentil was 365,000 and 175,000 acres, respectively while chickpea was lowest at 107,800 acres (USDA-NASS, 2018). Development of improved cultivars of pea, lentil, and chickpea for North Dakota and the Northern Great Plains will position the pulse industry to expand current production levels and meet expectations of an expanding market.The NDSU Pulse Breeding Program also aims to train the next generation of plant breeders and researchers that will continue making North Dakota’s and the US agriculture highly competitive in domestic and international markets. Active engagement of students with North Dakota producers (in extension or other meetings) will be performed annually to become aware of the concerns from stakeholders and ensure that these concerns are considered in the training of plant breeding students in the development of cultivars adapted to North Dakota’s pulse crops production regions.

Objectifs
1. Develop improved cultivars and germplasm of dry pea, lentil, and chickpea adapted to the Northern Great Plains region.2. Broadening the genetic base of the North Dakota State Pulse Breeding Program.3. Integration of molecular markers in an applied pulse breeding program.
